Tales From Cabin 14… and other exotic places Stories about fish, the places they live, and the characters that pursue them. Tales from Cabin 14 is not your average, or “same old-same old” collection of fishing and outdoors stories. Naturalist and philosopher, Henry David Thoreau, best summed up the theme behind the Cabin 14 stories, when he said: “Many men go fishing all of their lives without knowing that it is not the fish they are after.” While the actual “catch” is featured from time to time - and there are some pretty impressive catches - these stories focus on the places where fish congregate and the many characters I have met who have done so much to define and shape my experiences. Have you ever had the pleasure of being marooned, or come face to face with a Grizzly Bear? Well I have, and I’m sure you will find what transpired on both those occasions makes for some very interesting reading. You will meet the indomitable Uncle Harry, a character known to many as the "Map Maker," and travel with me on my very first trip into the wilds of northern Ontario, in search of fish - and French Fries. Not all of the characters featured in these stories are people. Get to know Thymallus, arcticus, the Arctic Grayling, a Pike named Peter, who I swear believed he was completely invisible. So pull up a chair and enjoy your visit to Cabin 14.
